    Please DO NOT abuse this

    Angels for Hope is an organization that offers free crocheted angels for anyone in need of hope.
    We attach a small card with the angel to say to an injured or ill person, you are not alone, others do care,
    and you are in our thoughts and prayers.
    At your request we can add your name to the card.
    In addition to crocheted angels, we also offer butterflies and smiley faces

    http://www.angelsforhope.org/

    I got an angel for hope after our ectopic ordeal, it did take a couple of weeks to arrive but its raelly lovely & made with warmth. The sites picture does no justice to the angel I got.

    Don't forget to donate a little.

    It is a little crazy how the smallest of things can touch you when you are placed in the situation a lot of us have.

    I went onto the Angels for Hope site a couple of months ago and told my story about Ellie. I had completely forgotten about it until this morning when i received my angel. It was a complete surprise and a most welcome one that brought on the tears. We have made Ellie a keepsake box and had a plaque made with her name and date of birth on. I lined it all at the weekend and we have only just finished it. It couldnt have come at a better time. Now i have an angel to put with my Angel's things.

    i got one of those, i have two actually, one arrived the day of Abi's funeral even though it was ordered a month before apparently, ironic much?

    It was put in with Abi and the other we got in a box which has lots of things stored at the top of our warderobe. Thanks for the link

    our angel for hope was waiting for us when we got home from our first appointment at the recurrent miscarriage clinic in Liverpool - felt really comforted, almost like someone knew how anxious I had been! they are a beautiful idea xx

    I just ordered one for my fiance, people over look him when they think about us losing our son, maybe a random act of kindness will warm his heart. I love him so much, thank you for posting this. I also made a donation, what they do is so beautiful. We got a crochet blanket when I had the m/c from people that work with the hospital, so I know how touching it can be to receive a surprise when you least expect something good.
